Dysfunctional management and many departments eat their young
Assistant Professor (Current Employee) – Brockport, NY – November 27, 2018
An awful place for someone on the tenrure-track. Very little real support for junior faculty and senior management all the way through is corrupt and dysfunctional. There is a high tun over of faculty for these reasons and relative compensation is well below average. I would not recommend any young scholar to take a job here. Many who do get tenure have brought in publications and that is what gets them over the line. Senior leadership more concerned with bums on seats for the money and not with conditions for faculty.

Horrible Culture, do not work here! Poor management starting with the top, lazy co-workers, money issues, lack of respect for employees, not a close working relationship with each other, worse job I have ever had
Video Intern (Former Employee) – Brockport, NY – July 17, 2018
It was an unpaid internship for college credits. They were very flexible with schedules. Mostly video editing, but multiple opportunities to go film things. I learned how to stay organized in terms of the video field as well as proper time management.
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Brockport, NY – July 5, 2018
I worked here between august 2017 and july 2018. I failed my prohibation because i called in too many times. I called in maybe twice a month on the high end. I had plenty of sick time and for some reason they penalize you for using it. The only times i ever called in is when i couldn't safely make the half hour drive into work. I was looked down on because i was the youngest worker there. The people they hire for the positions of power took hour long lunches because they could get away with it, then turned around and reprimanded you for taking an extra 5 minutes on an air break. They condescend you if you don't know what they're talking about.
I liked working here, but the people i had to work with made my experience less than pleasurable, and i advise people to work other jobs if you can.
Night Desk Attendant (Former Employee) – Brockport, NY – June 4, 2018
Gives time for students to do work, also instills a sense of responsibility and community within the resident hall. It is from 10 pm to 3 am which can prove difficult to someone with busy days. The management and RA's were nice enough but didn't check on the NDA's often.
Lots of free time, get to see a lot of people who live in the building
Secretary (Current Employee) – Brockport, NY – March 30, 2018
I've work at The College at Brockport for three years. I am part of CSEA. I have consistently been promoted each year and have worked in two different offices. A student service office and currently an academic office. There are high and low times of work, which goes along with the academic calendar. There are some stressful times, but that is consistent with any place you work. I have worked in different environments and cultures throughout my life, Brockport is far superior than any other.
I am sure if you work in facilities, you may have a different opinion. It is hard work keeping the campus in clean and good working order. Most facilities workers I am sure over worked and under paid. They do a great job though.
Pua (Former Employee) – Facilities and planing – February 1, 2018
Over 2 million square feet in over 30 buildings have to be covered maintenance Plumbing Heating and air conditioning only about 4 people there know what they're doing no family life forced overtime snitches and backstabbing. Do not do it the previous reviews were written by students that get to stay on their cell phones all day and not do anything don't fall into this trap there#!!!
Good benefits if you can deal with a pessimistic attitude
Getting pulled from job to job and then criticized because your first job isn't complete
Operations Coordinator (Current Employee) – Brockport, NY – October 1, 2017
Working here provides many benefits as the environment is not a stressful one. However, the work culture can be so relaxed that employees performance is often affected by other workers' disinterested work ethics. Not only that but it is very difficult to grow and face new challenges here. The good thing is that people are friendly and the College offers good benefits.
Good benefits, friendly people, relaxed environment
Academic Coordinator, Senior Academic Advisor, EOP (Current Employee) – Brockport, NY – September 11, 2017
SUNY Brockport is going through some exciting changes. The campus is experiencing some growth and construction. The the college culture is positive, and the most enjoyable part of the job is working with students.
